When this forum section was first discussed, a possible name was Cranky Old Guys. That name came from the belief that those divers who feel that a more classic section of vintage diving was needed on VDH and are most likely cranky old guys. But it is also those individuals who actually lived the chosen time period and used the equipment of that era. Those people might also be the ones who grew up with Sea Hunt and Mike Nelson.
The forum will be moderated by Captain and Simonbeans, both vintage in many respects. However these two divers started when J-valves and depth gauges were common and a computer was a distant vision yet to be developed.
